Storyline

A variety of low-budget but imaginative shows introduced by a rock band, Kaptain Kool and the Kongs. "Electra-Woman and Dynagirl" follows two spandex-clad beskirted crime fighters. "Wonderbug" features a trio of teenagers whose run-down Schlep Car is magically transformed into a puppet dune buggy. In "Dr. Shrinker," a mad scientist shrinks a group of castaways on his isle and they fight to survive. In "The Lost Saucer", two androids and their two human friends try to return to Earth. The 1977-1978 Season featured more of "Wonderbug," plus "Magic Mongo" and "Bigfoot and Wildboy." Written by Michael "Rabbit" Hutchison <rabhutch@spacestar.net>

Trivia

During the first season, the producers tried to capitalize on the glam/glitter rock craze by having Kaptain Kool and the Kongs dress up in glittery costumes. However, during the second season the band went for a more of a tough biker image along the lines of Fonzie by having the band dress up in leather jackets. See more »

More Memories From My Misbegotten Youth
28 September 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This was the show where the Kroffts put everything in including the kitchen sink. This basically was the Kroffts returning to where it all began when they were the costume and set designers for The Banana Splits. Even though most of the elements from the first season were campy (even for Saturday morning fare), this still had some pretty good elements. The only thing that I really thought was wrong with the show was "Electra Woman and Dyna Girl". That was such an obvious rip off of "Batman" that I'm surprised Howie Horwitz didn't sue the Kroffts for copyright infringement. Despite this, it was pretty good and came at a time when the Krofft brothers pretty much ruled Saturday mornings.
